Have you asked yourself why the government is suddenly eager to release secret UFO information that they've denied has even existed for the past 70 years? That may be the question of the year.

The information overload began on Dec. 16 when the New York Times broke a story that a secret UFO investigative agency with $22 million in Defense Department "black money" funding had existed from 2007 to 2012. It was called the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP) — military speak for UFO hunters.

Immediately thereafter, a declassified government video, which had been taken on the camera cockpit of a Navy jet in 2004, went viral. The video shows a glowing, high-velocity, rotating, "Tic Tac-shaped" object flying over the Pacific, accompanied by audio of the astonished pilots.
